But they built a giant balloon to welcome him!

There will be a fancy dinner at the birthplace of Winston Churchill and a meeting with the Queen when Donald Trump makes his first official visit to the UK next week. But the US President will spend hardly any time in London, minimizing the risk of awkward encounters with angry protesters.
Announcing details of the itinerary on Friday, the UK government disclosed that Trump will attend a black-tie dinner hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of the UK’s celebrated wartime leader. He will hold talks with May at her country retreat, and spend a night at the residence of the US ambassador in London.
But in a break from custom for a visit by a foreign leader, he will not visit Downing Street.
The US ambassador to London, Woody Johnson, rejected suggestions that the itinerary had been designed to avoid protestors. “The President is not avoiding anything,” he told journalists. “The President is merely trying to get as impactful a trip as he can get in a 24 hour period.”
“Not avoiding anything” my ass!
Trump is clearly terrified of being confronted by protesters and that has been reported on for over a year now.
Trump simply cannot handle criticism which is why he keeps holding these bullshit campaign rallies in red states.
It is too bad he is such a snowflake because these British protesters are really pulling out all of the stops.

Activists have promised to stage protests against Trump throughout his visit, with an event planned in London next Friday expected to be the biggest.
While he is in the capital, a giant “Trump baby” balloon, caricaturing him as a nappy-wearing infant, will be flown in the sky over Westminster after the Greater London Authority (GLA) granted the creators permission.
Don’t worry Britain, I am confident that the next leader of our country will be a person of strength and confidence and not such a sniveling coward.
